Michael Dennison Manchester Arndale

Mountain Salts CastleCourt shopping centre

Michael Dennison joined Manchester Arndale in 2008 as an apprentice at the age of 17, before rapidly progressing to site electrician, followed by lead shift engineer. Now site supervisor for operations, he has responsibility for all technical equipment across the 1.4m-sq ft centre, managing a team of 19 technical engineers across multiple disciplines. As well as acting as the first point of call for retailers and occupiers for technical issues or queries, Michael also makes proactive visits to offer advice on subjects such as energy efficiency.

Mountain Salts, the first of its kind in Northern Ireland, was the brainchild of a local farming couple who identified a demand for Mountain Salt health products. After a successful trial weekend in August 2016, the couple developed a bespoke kiosk to trade over Christmas that not only beautifully displayed the glow of each individual lamp, but also made it practical to serve customers quickly. The kiosk generated turnover of £60,000 and increased footfall to stores in the vicinity and on the back of this success the Mountain Salts brand is expanding internationally.
